Read more

Back in the days of the old-gen Audi RS6 (Avant or sedan), the one with the twin-turbo V10 engine, it honestly appeared as if no roomy performance model would ever top it in terms of sheer power and performance.

However, now that the model has been ditched in favor of a less-powerful V8-powered model, the crew over at EVO magazine decided to make sure it was still as fast as an RS6 deserves to be, first pitting it against its smaller brother, the RS4, and then a Nissan GT-R.
